There is a growing awareness and concern of a looming mental health crisis in the workplace:
- Reduced mental health is now the primary cause of lost working days
- 40% of New Zealand workers have felt burnout in the last 3 years
- 1 in 5 workers are experiencing a mental health problem
If you've tried Massage Mondays; Yoga on Wednesdays; Fruit on Fridays; Resilience training and EAP support.....what more can you be doing to protect the mental health and wellbeing of your employees? Where do you start? And what does good management of mental health and wellbeing look like?
The Health and Safety Association of New Zealand (HASANZ) in conjunction with WorkSafe New Zealand, Duncan Cotterill, The Institute of Organisational Psychology (IOP) and the NZ Occupational Health Nurses Association (NZOHNA) are pleased to invite you to an interactive panel discussion on how organisations can best manage mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, so workers thrive, and organisations prosper.
